the challenges iraq faces after the country has yet to finalize a law dictating the use of oil profits. tension continues to rise over the oil rights in the government of baghdad and the kurdish region. this is about an hour and a half. >> thank you for the policy event of the fall semester and i would just mention in the way that advertisement we will be having our next program on october 23rd and we will get a notice but it will be on jordan. i think i put a title belt there in the crosshairs and we are very fortunate to have dr. washer who is the vice president for studies of the carnegie endowment for the national peace, for our foreign minister of jordan and a free good personal friend who will be coming as well as dr. kurt ryan who is this a sea of political science at appalachian state university and a scholar and person who's written a lot about jordan. so that should be very interesting forum. but tonight, as we gather i always express my appreciation to the exxonmobil corporation which is a founder and a dillinger and gives us a substantial contribution each year to be able to put on
, there's no way in the world we would have invaded iraq and my god is it a different world if that's the case. >> stop right there if you will. i deal with that in the book. just to set briefly the framework, i think al gore would have been much more knowledgable and attentive about al-qaeda. i believe for the sake of the fiction that the cia. i think under those circumstances, al gore would have pushed hard against iraq. up not only would have had republicans urging it, you would have had many democrats who believed that sadaam had weapons of mass destruction. >> who cares he didn't attack us. >> uh-uh. i'm not arguing. >> there's no way vice president gore would have been that irrational. no way. >> chenk that's -- you're not listening to me. i agree with you. you're hitting a straw mat. i am suggesting that the politics would have been much tougher. vice president lieberman who would have been vice president would have been as anxious to go into iraq as dick cheney. he was one of the leading hawks of either party and so the picture i paint is not al gore going into iraq, no. he

today noticed since that speech, more than 900 soldiers have died in iraq. >> so that was this date in the campaign in 2004. this date in the campaign in 2008, even though we were right in the middle of the meltdown of the financial sector, still at the center of the campaign in 2008, at the first debate between john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa trm pa tray yous, they succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date,
. and jayar made the comment that when they didn't show the coffins after the iraq war, that's just propaganda. you have to know the cost of war. and then our second topic, todd akin. he is doing it again. he made the famous comments about if it's legitimate rape a women's body has a way of shutting down so it doesn't get pregnant. and he has a debate with senator mccaskill. he said this . . . now senator mccaskill had a chance to respond. she said this. >> i don't know exactly what his accusation that i'm not lady like means. i'm a former courtroom prosecutor and i try to be strong and informed and i think the debate was tough for todd because i went through the list of his very, very extreme positions, and i think that maybe he wasn't prepared to answer to some of that. >> cenk: ana how would you feel if a guy said you shouldn't be as aggressive as you were because that's not lady like. >> i would be livid and that would lead me to be even more unlady like. [ laughter ] >> cenk: michael? >> it is amazing. every kay there is something new. mitt romney must be
start a new ottoman empire. you look across tunisia, libya, egypt and iraq and iran and syria, lebanon, you look and you go, oh, my gosh, this is the makings, this is the beginnings of massive beginnings of a new ottoman empire that president obama can take great credit for. >> stephen: you heard him right. the ottoman empire. it ruled the middle east for over 600 years until it finally collapsed in 1922. or did it? (cheers and applause) (laughter) it did. (laughter) but according to gohmert the ottoman empire is making a comeback with the help of barack obama. and we don't stand a chance, folks! the ottomans were known for their formidable weaponry. razor-sharp scimatars that could lop off your head and comfy padded foot stools that could trip up dick van dyke.

million people. it's had a tremendous amount of influence in lebanon, afghanistan and iraq and in some cases, our interests are actually mutual with the united states and iran, so i think it is an important country without -- i think they've had a problem for many, many years with the west. particularly with the united states. where they believe, whether it's true or not, but they believe that the u.s. is out to get them. out to destroy the regime and overthrow the regime. even this recent delisting of the opposition group that was in iraq, they claim is another example of the u.s. only interested in changing the regime. we have many, many issues between the u.s. and iran over the 30 years, the nuclear age has gotten to the point now where we have harsh, harsh sanctions hurting the people, the economy, everyone. probably not the regime so much. >> not as tough as they should, at least from our reporting. if you were really trying to shut things down. >> well, they're not that lenient. i think people find a way to get around. >> leaky. >> sorry. but i think that right now, with these sa

to answer. i mean, i ran the edwards campaign. edwards said the vote for the iraq war was a mistake. that was probably a good thing for him to do. does that mean carte blanche? no. >> of course not, no. >> jonathan, quickly your former speech writer for president clinton, how do you rate his speech at the dnc among his all-time great speeches? >> i thought it was a terrific speech. it was a fantastic speech. i think he did a great job kind of laying out there the case for the obama presidency, and it set the stage for the president's speech the next night which as i said despite the instant reviews about the lack of loft, i think if you looked at the way public opinion moved in the days after really got a lot of work done. that's what i urge all the armchair pundits to do with the debates next week. not to look at the immediate reaction and all of us "squawk"ing on tv, but to see what the voters think about what the voters and romney says. >> any great stories from '96 debate prep with clinton? >> do i have any great stories? i think debrat prep is like vegas. what happens there sta
in iraq. today, i believe that as a nation, we are moving forward again. >> reporter: and with that renewed push for romney to try to convince voters of his empathy, an image from the campaign of a young romney, a missionary overseas, missing his girlfriend. his heart then as romney works to show heart now. >> my heart aches for the people i've seen. i was, yesterday, with a woman who was emotional and she said, "look, i've been out of work since may." she was in her 50s. she said, i don't see any prospects. >> reporter: of course, the big debate less than a week away now. the president heads to nevada this weekend where senator kerry will play governor romney. and governor romney, we know, has already held mock debates. he will practice more this weekend. george, i asked the governor about nerves, if he's worried about getting up on that stage. he said he's not, he's ready to draw the line, the differences between the two. but you know a lot is riding on this. >> could be make or break. you'll be there next wednesday. thank you, david. >>> now, to an explosive headli

cain said. declining influence dramatically in the middle east. billing out of iraq. intending to pull out of afghanistan. having a limp wristed reaction to assassination of four american diplomats. doing essentially nothing about the penetration of security of our embassies in multiple cities in the region. that is the tip of the iceberg in the last two weeks. this builds on a pattern of 3 1/2 years of failed leadership by the administration. martha: obviously there is a lot of political ramifications to this. i want to play two pieces of sound that are sort of prominent voices in this story. and the first one is from susan rice, now about 12 days ago. the second is mike huckabee just moments ago on our air. let's listen to those. >> what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video that, people gathered outside the embassy and then, it grew very violent. >> i think frankly if, you know, this issue really gets the traction that it deserves, and let me say, that it deserves, let's go back. richard nixon was forced out
, there was a security lapse here that is unthinkable. i had better security when i was in iraq than it seemed that the ambassador had. why that happened and whether we know, exactly, what his security detail was like, we don't know any of that. i think that the problem is, these things really do take time. you go back to the september 11th attack, we can send f.b.i. agents to florida to check out the flight schools. it was in the united states and we are talking about a place where it is not safe to send an f.b.i. agent. why the f.b.i.? because they do the best forensics. they are best at figuring this stuff out. it is our intelligence and others that put more fact on top of that letting us get to the bottom of this. this is benghazi. you do not just go wandering in with 15 or 20 f.b.i. agent. >>neil: something collapsed but we will find out. you are right, joe. very go to see you. >> i think i know why this guy had to draw pictures for the united nations. a lot them are pretty stupid at the united nations. they can tax your patience especially when they tax your wallet. are you ready ? share
in iraq, hamas maybe, they could attack the prime minister of israel and accuse him of escalation. reality others in the region, such as saudies, kuwaities, threatened by the iranians have someone speaking on their behalf but not a arab leader, the leader of israel. melissa: i was in the middle east recently and leaders are definitely nervous. they see this as almost an inevitable conclusion at this point. do you think 70% to a bomb is about where they are? do you think it is even further than that? >> i think iranians are working on two tracks. one is slowly gradually to get to the bomb, maybe 70% or so possibly but there's another track, melissa, which is the missiles. if you don't have a delivery system and you could have a bomb and put it in downtown tehran. that is the concern. a pentagon report couple months ago they have a fleet of missiles that can not only reach israel but our sixth fleet in the med train ran and most of the -- mediterranean and most of the arab world. melissa: that impact is at forefront of our minds. but our show is about money so we want to talk about the finan
at travelocity. >>> prisoners clash with guards at a dramatic jailbreak in northern iraq. lisa sylvester's monitoring that, some of the other top stories in "the situation room" right now. lisa, what happened? >> hi, wolf. thety of tikrit remains under lock down. they set off car bombs and overtook guards and stole their weapons. this is the aftermath of a riot at the prison in the attack last year. it lasted for several hours. a joke by "the onion" apparently fooled a news agency. the agency printed a fake poll saying would prefer ahmadinejad over president obama. iran's foreign news agency published it today days after it appeared in the onion, it has now been removed. apple issued a raree iing error service. ceo tim cook says in a statement "we strive to make world class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. with the launch of our new maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. we are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers. and we are doing everything we can to make it better." he's also suggesting using alternatives in t
the killing in soldiers in iraq and continue to do so in afghanistan. before that, that killed hundreds of american troops in saudi arabia. the have turned areas -- thousands of these rockets have been fired at israeli communities. in the last year, they have spread the international terror networks to two dozen countries across the continents india to bulgaria. they have even plotted to blow up a restaurant a few blocks from the white house in order to kill a diplomats. of course, the iran rulers repeatedly denied the holocaust. they called for israel's destruction on a daily basis, as they did this week from the united nations. i asked you, given this record of an iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, imagine an iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. imagine their long-range missiles fit with nuclear warheads. their terror networks armed with atomic bombs. who among you would feel safe in the middle east? who would be safe in europe? who would be safe in america? who would be safe anywhere? there are those who believe that a nuclear-armed iran can be deterred like a soviet uni
, the campaign you might remember was all about iraq. >> at odds with the openful picture described by the president. mr. bush was challenged during an interview with fox news about last spring's mission accomplished appearance on the "uss abraham lincoln." >> would you do it again? >> you mean have the sign up there? >> no, no, go in there if the flight jacket? >> absolutely. >> you would? >> i'm say t
, and indeed, i think next month for the first time, iraq will actually export more oil than iran. so the whole balance of power in terms of oil production in the region is changing as a result of the sanctions. on the other hand, i think as the recent report of the atomic energy authority indicates, there's no sign that iran is relenting on this essential push, and the trouble is it's combined with a regime that holds views and does things that most people within the region find unacceptable. >> one of the views that he held and espoused when he came here before, particularly in new york and america in a wider sense, was what he said about wiping israel off the face of the map. he did clarify this slightly when i interviewed him. listen to this. >> translator: when we say to be wiped, we say for occupation to be wiped off from this world. for war seeking, to be wiped off and eradicated. the killing of women and children to be eradicated. and we proposed a way. we proposed a path. the path is to recognize the right of the palestinians to self-governance. >> do you believe in a two-state solutio
happened during the whole question of -- during the bush administration of iraq. i think this was a kind of graphic way of trying to show something. would an american president do that at the u.n.? it's an open question. is it effective? if you're trying to explain an issue people have heard about, when you reduce it to something that makes it rather clear and tends to simplify it, it at least tends to clarify what you're talking about. i think what prime minister netanyahu was trying to do was to explain, where is the point where we would become concerned when we say we will prevent an iran from having a nuclear bomb, what's the point to lose the ability to prevent that? this was his way of demonstrating it. would it be effective for an american president? hard to say. i think it was fairly effective for him. >> you know, the prime minister is going to have to now get on the phone with the president as well as secretary clinton, after making this speech. do you think he overstepped a political line here, and in any way gave the president cover on the iran issue? >> it's very interesting
fighting the city has seen in two months. in iraq, some 80 inmates, including al qaeda militants, escaped from a prison. the jailbreak happened overnight in tikrit after several convicts seized weapons from a prison storeroom. they clashed with security guards for hours before overpowering them and breaking free. a dozen people were killed, including ten guards. iraqi officials said 36 of the inmates were later recaptured. police in minneapolis said the gunman in an office shooting yesterday had been fired hours before he killed four people and then himself. another of the shooting victims died in the hospital today. last evening, dozens of police and swat team officials swarmed a minneapolis neighborhood after a man opened fire at a sign- making business. the company's owner and a ups driver were among those killed. three other people were injured in the shootings. the u.s. postal service will miss its next payment to the treasury, due on sunday. the $5.6 billion will be its second default in as many months. postmaster general patrick donahoe said he has already slashed as much as he can
slash defense and pull out of afghanistan early and leave iraq entirely and now the narrative is in tatters. they had a huge personal political interest in maintaining that narrative. it was wrong to begin. it is wrong now and the president himself, even the day after his own director of counterintelligence, matthew olson said it is a terrorist act. this guy went on "the view" of all places to repeat the lie. >> and it is worse than that. he went before the u.n. i read his speech. he had three fat paragraphs mr. obama did trying to sell the video/spontaneous demonstration. still, that was, what, this past tuesday. >> correct. >> and remember, he and mrs. clinton went on tv in pakistan still apologizing for the video. they have so much invested in the notion that if we reach out, don't offend these people we will get along fine. it is ludicrous. it's a lie and the president of the united states needs to come before the american people and explain to them what did he know? when did he know it? and why has he and senior officials been lying. >> is jack jacobs here. welcome. i wan
who have some combat experience. whether we're talking about iraq in which libyans represented a very sizable contention of foreign fighters there, or even in the afghan pakistan war zone. you have a lot of folks with a great deal of experience and that also plays into the reason of why we didn't know about this and its entirety before it happened. a lot of these guys are very sophisticated in their secrecy and trade craft. you're talking about the word of mouth, et cetera. >> let me ask you about this crucial question we've been reporting on, which is what appears to be, i mean it is at least from the way it's come out, a real disconnect from what the u.s. intelligence committee is saying they knew and when and what the white house and state department have said. their hesitance from the white house and state department to use the word terrorism and to talk about al-qaeda or al-qaeda linked groups. >> well, i think there's a difference here between raw intelligence that's coming in in the context of an investigation and journalists on the ground as well as intelligence officers stage

about weapons of mass destruction in iraq that sets the stage for the war? there was plenty of calls for resignation as a result of that bad intelligence. >> i'm uncomfortable because i think when there's a terrorist attack, we should come together as americans. i didn't like when it was done to george bush, i don't like it when it's done to barack obama. intelligence is hard to follow, and you have to let some time pass. she was wrong, obviously, but did she have access to all of the information? we don't know the answers to though things, but i would rather not set my sights on her. >> you served six secretaries of state. what do you think aaron? >> i think ari is right, we try to find vehicles that are convenient fall, for what frankly was, and i think ar sierks being magnanimous here, at best, a muddled message. days after the attack on benghazi, the "new york times" was reporting as the organized protests, what is now considered an assault on the consulate, they were talking to members so it was clear that this was more than a spontaneous display of anger after a vile video. so
